I heard once of someone deliberately doing poor work and letting their leader who always took credit get a lashing. Wouldn’t advise that, though. This project will end. It sucks but as I’ve learned, most people here are just in it for themselves.

If you or I were leading the team I’m sure we’d acknowledge the hard work and ideas generated by our teammates. Some people don’t know any better or are unaware of their behavior.

Let me ask you this. Is getting credit the #1 thing to you? Is it why you do the work you do? If the team was successful in the end would you be ok with this?

Thanks for the support M1. Good thing is the partner on this pulled me onto it given my past experience. He’s not involved with day to day work at all but I guess he knows I bring a good bit of client/domain knowledge having done this previously.

..for my ideas, takes credit for my ideas in front of the senior manager, partner and client and ensures he doesn’t acknowledge any of the additional evening/weekend work I do given I have the foundational knowledge. I’m not sure why this person would keep doing this? Any way to win in this situation or it’s a loosing battle with recognition and reviews?

For reference, client specifically brought their work to my group so that they could work with me and it’s a personal contact of mine.

I am on staff aug project, so I work mostly on client laptop.

I get anxious having to check my company’s email and try to delay checking it, so it’s all piled up when I check it.
